  • The Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA) awarded the contract for a H225M Full Mission Simulator (FMS) to Indra, following a competitive tender among international simulation companies.
  • The H225M simulator will be qualifiable to EASA Level D, and will provide aircrew flight proficiency and mission training in different light and environmental conditions. It will include advanced training analytics with the use of biometric sensors.
  • It will have Roll-on/Roll-off (Ro-Ro) capability, allowing future helicopter simulator cockpits variants to be interchanged in the same simulator. 
  • This delivery for the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) reinforces Indra’s position as one of the world’s leading simulator manufacturers and having delivered one of the most number of helicopter simulators.

Indra has been awarded a contract for the development and production of a EASA Level D qualifiable H225M FMS for the RSAF. The contract includes post-delivery support, technical assistance, and options for future expansion.

The simulator will be equipped with motion and vibration platforms. It will enable training in normal and emergency helicopter procedures, with special emphasis on training in all possible missions to be performed by the RSAF, such as search and rescue, aeromedical evacuation, and humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations, among others.

Indra’s simulator will ensure safety during training, replicating realistic operational scenarios and complex maneuvers. It will simulate both day and night operations, under all possible challenging environmental conditions.

It will also include advanced training analytics capabilities using biometric sensors to assist instructors in evaluating pilots and for more insights during debriefing.

One of the most outstanding features of this simulator is its Ro-Ro capability, which allows future potential helicopter cockpits to be interchanged in a single simulator, optimizing the use of the system.

International leadership in simulation

This contract for the RSAF reinforces Indra’s position as one of the world’s leading simulator manufacturers, with more than 200 simulators delivered to over 50 customers in more than 20 countries.

Indra is a pioneer in the integration of virtual reality, augmented reality and new digital technologies into simulation. It has extensive experience in the development of mission simulators for aircraft such as the Eurofighter, the Airbus A330 MRTT, the Airbus A400M, and other Level D civil simulators such as the A330, A320, Boeing 737 and the ATR 72. It is also one of the companies which has developed simulators for a wide range of helicopters, which include the NH90, Tigre, Cougar, Chinook, Blackhawk, Seahawk, AW159 Wildcat, MH53, C135, H135, H225, H175, AS350, H145, EC145, Bell212, Bell412 and Sikorsky S76 civilian models.
